A formal kickoff to construction of the gymnasium at the St. John School on Gifft Hill was held Monday, according to a report by the St.John Source. Initially, the gymnasium will house classrooms for the school which was recently organized by the merger of Coral Bay and Pine Peace schools. It is hoped the structure will be complete by March, said co-administrator Scott Crawford. "This is an historic occasion. This is the first high school campus in the history of our island," he said. Students were asked to prepare a time capsule for the building. Until construction is done, high schoolers will continue to meet at the Lumberyard, while the Pine Peace site will accommodate younger pupils.
